i think being a housewife is part of marriage life. although in china women work and take part of housework, on one hand they blame over-loaded; on the other hand, they look forward to not needing to work someday. if she is energetic, she can take care of her work as well as take care of the family. if she cannot handle both, she'd better stay at home because that's the best choice for the family. husband and wife should not fight for who will be more glorious. now i am making more money than my husband but after we go to canada, i think probably i will stay at home for sometime to give birth our child and help him to seek a stable job. i am happy to do so as a wife. maybe someday when we can manage to work both and afford taking good care of our child, i will work again and i don't believe i will make less money than my husband, even if he is a IT guy.
